comment Character converter between languages
Beware that transliteration is culture-dependent. Google Transliteration uses some variants of transliteration schemes used in English. They need not conform to standards, still less to schemes used in other languages. And the schemes that Google uses seem to be undocumented and complicated. The odds are that if you need reliable, documented transliteration, you need to code it yourself.

@tyranitar, which font is being used? It looks like the font were damaged somehow.
